Many of today’s pet care needs can be performed and administered in the comfort of your own home. We are pleased to offer our services to you and your pet, providing you with the same quality care you would receive in a local clinic. If we feel that your pet needs advanced diagnostic, surgical or medical procedures beyond the scope of our practice, we will recommend the appropriate clinic or specialist.
Providing routine veterinary care helps protect animal health, which can protect human health in the case of zoonotic (transmissible to humans) diseases. A complete medical assessment is centered around a thorough physical examination. It is recommended that pets be examined once a year by your veterinarian. Pets age about seven times as fast as we do, so older pets should be examined even more often (every six months). Examinations are critical to help veterinarians find any abnormalities or diseases early, which can often prolong your pet’s length and quality of life.
Vaccinations are a very important component of preventative health care for your pet. We offer a personalized vaccination program for your pet. It is much easier to try to prevent diseases from occurring than to provide treatment for your pet if he or she becomes ill. After a thorough medical history is obtained and a physical examination is performed, your pet’s recommended vaccines will be determined based on his or her lifestyle and potential exposure to preventable infections.
We have an in-clinic laboratory and more specialized tests are sent to a certified laboratory for analysis. Dogs and cats are unable to tell us when they are not feeling well. We rely on changes in behaviour to tell us when they are sick. Sometimes, changes can be happening internally with their organs without any real noticeable change in your pet’s activities. These diseases generally show outwardly when they are quite advanced. We encourage annual wellness blood testing for adult patients and twice-yearly testing for senior patients.
Our clinic is equipped with leading-edge equipment and an experienced team to ensure your pet’s comfort and safety during and after anesthesia and surgery. In some cases, we can recommend a specialist from our network if any specialized intervention is necessary. Our team will accompany you at all stages of the procedure to ensure the well-being of your cat or dog.
Your pet’s oral health is very important. Regular dental care (scaling and polishing) is recommended to reduce the risk of infection and detect abnormalities that may be causing your pet pain. We are fully equipped to clean and polish your animal’s teeth, assess oral health, perform digital x-rays, and proceed with oral surgery if needed. Your pet must be completely immobilized during these procedures, so they have to be placed under general anesthesia.
A microchip implant allows for quick and accurate identification of a pet. It can be easily scanned and referenced to existing databases. The microchip is implanted between the pet’s shoulder blades under the skin with a needle and special syringe, a process similar to a vaccination with little to no pain. Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediately with a handheld device that uses radio waves to read the chip. This device scans the microchip, and then displays a unique alphanumeric code. Once the microchip is placed, your dog or cat must be registered with the microchip company, usually for a one-time fee.
No method of identification is perfect. Keep current identification tags on your pet at all times, consider microchipping as reinforcement. If your dog or cat does become lost, more identification can increase the odds of finding your beloved companion. Make sure to always keep your contact information up to date.
Coping with the impending loss of a pet is one of the most difficult experiences a pet parent will face. Whether your furry friend is approaching his golden years or has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, it’s important to calmly guide the end-of-life experience and minimize any discomfort or distress. As your pet’s health declines, you may elect to care for your pet at home—with the supervision of a veterinarian—or you may decide to end his suffering with euthanasia.
Currently On Hold
Home euthanasia allows you to say goodbye in a less stressful and more familiar environment for your beloved pet. For the body care after the procedure is completed, we refer to a private pet cremation service. It is an intensely personal decision to euthanize a beloved pet due to injury or disease. People often wonder if they will know when it is time. A simple rule of thumb: it is probably time when the bad days begin to outnumber the good ones. Pet owners usually have a idea of what is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ in the life of their pet, but must feel free to ask questions and discuss the health status of their pet.
